The company said Friday its GlobalEye Airborne Early Warning & Control aircraft is derived from Bombardier‘s Global 6000 model and equipped with an extended-range Erieye radar technology.

GlobalEye is designed to support border surveillance, search-and-rescue and military operations.

Saab noted it will conduct ground and flight tests of the inaugural AEW&C aircraft in an effort to generate aerodynamic data.

UAE placed an order for two GlobeEye units during a Dubai Air Show that took place in November 2015 and ordered an additional aircraft last year.
